Dr. Bott is now shipping the PocketDock For 3G iPod, US$18.95 device that lets you connect a third generation iPod’s docking port to a standard 6-pin FireWire cable.
Designed and built by SendStation Systems, it’s designed to let owners of newer iPods leave their docking cables at home but retain access to their iPod while on the road. With PocketDock for 3G iPod, you can connect a third generation iPod to another Mac or PC to exchange files or just to charge the battery.
It’s smaller than a box of matches and allows a standard 6-pin FireWire cable to connect to the iPod’s proprietary docking port. PocketDock is compatible with all iPods that use the dock connector.
